@whynothugo Why not rename the package? You can use replaces in the PKGBUILD to ensure the transition goes smoothly.

This package predates ones like "base", hence the naming. Back in the day, there was no meta package for "base", just a group.

Why isn't this package named base-devel-meta? Isn't that more consistent with how the meta packages in the official repositories are named?

Yes, I mean removed from the dependency list. but I see your point.

@tleydxdy AUR packages have maintainers, so they can be updated if you find any issue on them. No need to be overzealous and DELETE anything that doesn't meet your standards.

That said, this package depends on packages in base-devel. The fact that grep and sed are both part of base and base-devel are beyond my control.

I think packages that base depends on like grep sed and friends should be removed. since now base is a package and it needs to be installed at all times

Updated. Thanks!

Hi, There are 24 packages in the base-devel group: systemd and util-linux dependencies should be removed. Cheers

Please remove the brackets from the url field (makepkg reports that url should be not an array).
